In a saga based on the Afro Samurai TV series - and featuring the voice of Samuel L. Jackson - "Afro" hunts for his father's killer. The game's striking art style is the perfect showcase for combat that's part slasher flick, part ballet. As a samurai, your kills may end up as elegant as they are ruthless.

RZA's beats seep into the game itself, with the music affecting enemy AI and altering the gameplay's tone.
